"Jim's process allowed our group the time and resources to define our value and process as a team. Before working with Jim the three of us [three members of Bassi-Kelly Group) may have answered questions differently which may have unintentonally caused uneasiness with clients. Through his work, the three of us decided on a process together which shows a more united fiont and in return has increased our growth rate."
